    Small cramped airport, with dated carpeting. Security lines can snake outside even on weekdays, but they do move fairly quickly and the TSA is slightly more happy to greet you, given Hawaii's climate
  • Patty S.
    Airport was not well laid out we had to walk a mile to get our baggage literally. We flew in on Hawaiian from San Jose. I think it was due to construction.

    Really outdated and confusing to get around.

    Was probably a nice airport back in the 1980s but could use some serious modernization.

    Pretty dirty restrooms in the baggage claim area - don't forget your own tissues/sanitary wipes. Ungepflegter Sanitäranlagen im Bereich der Gepäckausgabe, eigene Papier-/Desinfektionstücher helfen.

    If you're departing for the mainland, do the smart thing and grab the Wiki Wiki shuttle instead of walking the length of the airport to your gate. It's a great workout, but totally unnecessary.
